Let’s have Cake

H/T to Dorothy Parker and Ray Bradbury.

D.P.:  “…how like me, to put all my eggs into one bastard.”

R.B.: “If you’re reluctant to weep, you won’t live a full and complete life.”)

This SEM photo of a hookworm’s head is so beautiful and vivid I thought I was looking at a digital painting. I want to frame this on the wall.

Hookworms are precious

I would call this “joyfully satisfied”.

More from the cooperhewitt! Here’s another museum cats entry—what I guess is an exhibit catalog of sorts. Zoo Party was an event at the Central Park Zoo on Thursday, May 16, 1968 put on by the NY district chapter of the American Institute of Interior Designers to benefit The Cooper Union Museum Acquisition Fund. This was at a pivotal time, as The Cooper Union Museum, which had been closed for 5 years before this event, officially became a part of the Smithsonian. Tony award winning Broadway star Nancy Dussault was apparently the entertainment for the day. 

Here’s where the Smithsonian Collections Search and library resources can come together to get a bit more context on the objects in our collections. The stoneware figure of a cat pictured above can be seen on Cooper Hewitt’s collections website. It is also findable with an easy search on collections.si.edu, where you can search objects across the Smithsonian. Finally, the Libraries’ copy of this catalog, Zoo Party, is available for anyone from those casually interested in the topic to researchers and historians.
